Before I start building or adapting a machine, I turn to Practical Farm Ideas. I don't know how many times I have flicked though my copies!

Contributing to Farm Ideas remotely

We're playing safe in Covid-19 and not visiting farms

Send along as many as you like

We really want to feature as many workshop ideas as we can. So please include things that you think obvious and commonplace. 

Making contact

Farmers phone, send emails or text messages, and all are easy for me to deal with. We can have a chat about what you have done so I can learn in broad terms the outline.

The numbers are  0777 88 77 514  The UK international code +44  Message me to join my Whatsapp  My skype name is farmideas

The email is mike(a)farmideas (dot) co (dot) uk  

Pictures

The more the merrier! It's always great to have a few showing the machine in action. I take a good few on each machine - overall ones from different viewpoints show how the pieces connect. Detail Pics showing the critical things that perhaps took time to get right. 

Although I ideally need high res pics, say 2 mb, many ones of quite low res can be used, so please don't not send because of size. Some people have sent all low res in an email and then sent the selected ones via www.wetransfer.com

Mobile phones are often set to reduce the size.  Pictures can overload email accounts, both the sender and receiver which makes wetransfer an excellent tool. Select the free service, load up the picture files and send to  my email address above, then verify with the code number they email to you. I get a message to say pics from you are waiting to download. 

The words

There's no need to write anything, though many send notes in the their pics which is very useful. Most of the fact comes from phone conversations, and we can do this on Skype which can be very useful. 

You can check before we print

Some people like to see the text before we go to press, and that's fine. 

Give it a go!

Some farm innovators have ideas which could be developed into products, and I'm more than happy to talk about this in confidence. One or two have been developed into international successes, but this is never overnight. But give it a go, get in touch and we can discuss the project in confidence. 

Best wishes
